Your home's humidity plays a major role in your family's comfiness. As the seasons change, humidity levels fluctuate as well.  

Dry air during winter weather in Livermore can make your throat and nose feel scratchy. It can also put you at a increased risk for colds and other ailments.

For greatest comfort, your home’s humidity levels should be between 35 and 50 percent.
